Indspire Award Winner, Public Transit Study, and The Legacy of Twin Falls
How have refugees around the world been affected by this pandemic? We hear the details of a new UN report from Rema Jamous, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees' representative in Canada. Industrial heritage is what one researcher is calling the abandoned community of Twin Falls. We hear from researcher Anatolijs Venovcevs and James Williamson on their visit to Twin Falls, and what this heritage means for Labrador. A Labrador City resident is creating something special for patients in the long term care hospital: a shirt that acts like a bib. We hear from Jacqueline Rideout. The Indigenous tourism industry has been heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Keith Henry, the CEO of the Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada tells us about a new campaign that hopes to help travellers easily access Indigenous tourism opportunities. What would a public transit service look like in Happy Valley-Goose Bay? We hear from Director of Community Development and Research Brenna Jarrar on how the town is trying to answer that question. Mitchell MacDougall of NunatuKavut is a youth recipient of an Indspire Award. We hear from him today. Finally, when school history books tell us something terrible and untrue about an Indigenous group, how are children supposed to know the difference? The CBC's Bernice Hillier brings us the story of researchers and people who are trying to change the narrative of the Mi'kmaq Mercenary Myth.
